I had a similar thing happen a few months ago (might have been from an
update). Using Hoary, the audio does not play anymore in totem-xine,
however the video does. A few other people mentioned the same thing,
and someone suggested to use just the Xine stand-alone player, and
that works great. You might even like it better than Totem. :-)
